Ravensworth Nurseries is a family run business involved in the production of bedding and pot plants and has been established in Ravensworth for 50 years.

The Watch em Grow range of Starter plants, seedlings and plugs was developed at Ravensworth Nurseries 20 years ago and is raised from cuttings and seeds on site. Bedding plants, Cyclamen and Poinsettias are grown in season, we also make up large quantities of hanging baskets, holly wreath and planted indoor arrangements.

We have an experienced and qualified staff that is experienced in the planting and growing of large quantities of plants and have been with company for many years.

Ravensworth Nurseries has a modern, computerised 13 acre site with areas of glass that have roof and side opening vents for hardening off crops.

We deliver nationwide to garden centres and retail nurseries and run our own haulage division using temperature controlled vehicles.

Ravensworth Nurseries have an on-going commitment to the environment with an environmental policy in place and arrangements for recycling cardboard and plastics and we have installed an environmentally friendly wood burning boiler to heat the nursery which means that our plants can be grown under virtually carbon neutral conditions.

We have been Bedding and Pot Plant Grower of the Year in both 1997 and 2006 and a finalist in both 1996 and 2005.

Ravensworth Nurseries are actively involved in the local community and we encourage school, college and other grower parties to visit the nursery.
